City of Hope Using Isilon's NAS

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – City of Hope, a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center, is using Isilon's network-assisted storage in its DNA sequencing-based studies, Isilon said today.

The Duarte, Calif.-based research hospital is using the company's NAS system to store and manage "massive amounts of mission-critical genomic data," which is helping it to streamline access and analysis requirements.

Richard Jove, director of City of Hope's Beckman Research Institute, said in a statement that the addition of the IQ system has given the institute the storage infrastructure it needs to "accelerate our DNA sequencing workflow" and to "expand our capacity to support critical research in the areas of proteomics, cheminformatics and imaging."

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
